Ooma Office now available for small businesses at Staples stores nationwide

Ooma Office Provides Affordable Big Business Phone Solution to Small Businesses

PALO ALTO, CA - Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Ooma, Inc., the leader in smart home and business communication systems, today announced that its small business phone system, Ooma Office, is available for purchase at Staples stores nationwide and Ooma.com. A long time leader and innovator in home phone service, Ooma Office is the first product developed by Ooma to address the needs of small businesses. Ooma Office delivers the advanced features and service quality that come with a big business phone service at a price point that is far more affordable than other solutions.

“We believe that small businesses shouldn’t have to pay hundreds of dollars every month for a business-class phone system,” said Jim Gustke, Vice President of Marketing for Ooma. “Ooma Office helps small businesses present a professional image without paying an expensive monthly phone bill. Now businesses can use their hard earned dollars to attract more customers rather than pay the phone company.”

While small businesses can spend upwards of $100 a month for each line of phone service, Ooma Office costs just $19.99 per line a month for unlimited calling in the U.S. and Canada. Beyond providing significant cost savings, Ooma Office offers all the features found in far more expensive options, including a virtual receptionist, extension dialing, on-hold music, ring groups, conference bridges and much more.

Unlike other Internet phone systems, Ooma Office allows businesses to use regular telephones instead of expensive IP phones which require Ethernet cabling, reducing the cost of equipment and installation services over other cloud-based services. Using the Ooma Linx remote phone jack with DECT 6.0 wireless technology, Ooma Office users can set up extensions almost anywhere in the office in minutes without running new wires or cabling.

“Ooma Office is the perfect phone system for my business. I was amazed how easy it was to set up in just a few minutes and I’ve been impressed with the virtual receptionist text-to-speech feature in particular, which gives me the ability to change my greeting on the fly so I can make the best impression with my customers,” said Jeff Batchelor, President and CEO, XEOS International, Inc. “I chose Ooma because of its reputation for call clarity and reliability, and Ooma Office has far exceeded my expectations.”

Ideal for main street businesses with less than ten employees, Ooma Office supports up to five phone extensions and up to ten phone lines. For small businesses with mobile workers, Ooma Office offers up to 15 virtual extensions which forward to external numbers, allowing users to service customers throughout their busy day. Additionally, the Ooma Office online interface allows remote access to system settings to keep the business running smoothly from just about anywhere.

The Ooma Office starter pack is now available from Staples stores nationwide and Ooma.com at an MSRP of $249.99. The starter pack includes the Ooma Office Base Station and two Ooma Linx to support up to three phone extensions, and is expandable to five phone extensions with the purchase of additional Ooma Linx devices.
